Abstract

We present a multi-mode Reed-Solomon decoder based on the reformulated inversionless Berlekamp-Massey algorithm, which can retain the throughput rate of the reformulated architecture in many practical applications. With the developed coefficient-selector-free multi-mode arrangement, the resulting design possesses not only area-efficient property but also very simple and regular interconnect topology that makes it very suitable for VLSI realization. Implementation results exhibit that the achievable throughput rate of the developed decoder for n≤255 and 0≤t≤8, implemented in UMC 0.18μm 1P6M process, is 3.2Gbps at the maximum clock rate of 400MHz and the total gate count is 22,931. Compared with the existing work based on extended Euclidean algorithm, our development provides both area and speed advantages and can be used for multi-standard applications.
